    Failed to start GSD on local node

    Hi all,

    I just finished an oracle 9i RAC install (2 nodes) on AIX 5.3 using HACMP as clusterware. however, when i try to create a cluster database, DBCA prompts me to start the GSD as follows: /u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin/gsdctl start. When i issue this command as the oracle user, i get the following message.

    (oracle@cteora1) /u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin > gsdctl start
    Failed to start GSD on local node
    (oracle@cteora1) /u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin >

    As root,

    cteora1:/var/opt >/u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin/gsdctl start
    PRKC-1021 : Problem in the clusterware
    Failed to get list of active nodes from clusterware
    cteora1:/var/opt >

    Now, when i run the gsd.sh script for tracing, i get the following:

    (oracle@cteora1) /u01/app/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin > gsd.sh

    I've researched on Metalink & all the proposed solutions aren't helping. Can someone be of help?

    You need to raise a ticket with metalink for this as i beleive oracle over wrote some of HACMP libraries during the relinking phase and thats why it couldnt load some library and register itself with HACMP.

    It could also be a permission problem

    Could not register in group opsm with the clusterware
    Just referring my old notes and this is what i have scratched down

    Ensure that the oracle user is added to the HAGSUSER UNIX group.

    hope it helps

    I just read this document from IBM on installing 9i RAC on AIX with HACMP:


    It's talking about the hyagsuser group, which i believe is the issue b/c i don't even have this group in my system. I've collected all the necessary details about adding this group, & making the oracle user a member of it, still awaiting my sys admin for implementation.
    Will keep u posted on any latest dvlp'ts.

    Well, the hagsuser group was successfully created using the steps outline in the doc i sent earlier & i was able to start the gsd on both cluster nodes.

    Thanks for ur input
